An Excellent Foundation: Kindergarten Teacher Hope Soo

At 3 a.m., most people are fast asleep – or at least tossing and turning. But not kindergarten teacher Hope Soo. You can usually find her wide-awake and faithfully running on her treadmill.

“I love that time of day. It is incredibly peaceful and I can think really clearly,” she said.   

Soo, who has been at Hawaiʻi Preparatory Academy since 1985, recently completed the Honolulu Marathon – her fifth marathon since she ran her first at age 21.
